February Half Term Family Lodges

February Half Term cottage breaksWhat to do with the kids during the winter half term can be a challenge.  We all know the weather can be unpredictable, at best, so the February school half term at home can feel like a lot of time locked in at home with children with far too much unused energy… does that sound familiar?

If it does, then why not consider taking a short break in a holiday lodge this February half term? It really is a perfect family solution.

Activity Parks to Swimming Pools and Family Fun

Lots of lodges can be found on popular holiday parks across the UK.  During the School half term many of these parks will run kids entertainment programmes for everything from exploring in the great outdoors to indoor art and  creativity sessions.  In fact there will be lots to keep children of all ages entertained so that Mum and Dad can enjoy the break to, whatever the weather.

Many of the holiday parks with lodges also have swimming pools, table tennis tables, amusements and other facilities such as indoor play areas.  So there are lots of things to do to wear even the most active children out during a fun packed day.

Accommodation for Families and Pets

Lodge accommodation is perfect for families providing comfortable and affordable self catering.  Cosy even in February, lodges are available for families of all sizes and that includes your pet dog too!

Great Prices, Superb Value

Holiday lodges are excellently priced family self catering all year round, but they offer even better value in the winter half term where prices are much lower than in the summer.  In addition you can find some great deals and discounts on holiday lodges across the UK which can save you even more. Take a look at some February half term lodge deals

February Half Term Cottage Breaks – head to the Cotswolds?

With the new year rapidly approaching, the next school holiday on the horizon is the February Half Term and so now is the perfect time to snap up a bargain before they are all gone!

If you are looking for some school half term inspiration we might have just what you are looking for as we have added a whole new collection of cottages in the ever popular Cotswolds to our listings. Whether you are looking to explore picturesque villages, roam the countryside or relax in a home from home, you can be sure that, whichever one of the Cotswold cottages you choose you will have a great time.

The February half term is a great time to get away in a cottage, apartment or lodge as there is still plenty of outdoor fun to be had but its great to end the day in your cosy accommodation.

It is well worth considering a lodge on a holiday park during the February half term as there is quite often family entertainment on the park during the holiday period which keeps the children of all ages entertained even if the weather is on the cold or damp side!

Christmas Cottages and Festive Breaks

Christmas cottage breaksNow that the weather has turned decidedly chilly and the clocks have gone back, I think it’s safe to give our first mention to the Christmas holidays.

And, while many people like Christmas at home, a lot of people love the opportunity to escape over the festive holiday break.  we can certainly see the appeal, either with or without the extended family, to enjoy the Christmas and New Year holidays in a lovely cottage in the country or on the British coast.

A cottage for Christmas can be perfect for couples wanting a quiet retreat but are so perfect for big families all looking to get together in one place that is big enough to take them all.

Let’s be honest, Christmas holidays are not about the rush to see holiday attractions and theme parks, they are much more to do with staying  in with your friends and loved ones – with the occasional walk to get some fresh air and exercise.  Which is why getting away makes such perfect sense and so to help you find a cottage for you this December, Christmas and New Year we have put together a couple of list that you will find useful:
